Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, could you please reproduce this with the
updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am not going to reproduce it on FC6 or F7. This problem should be that
often happen because it is quite hard to have someone's imap tree with deep
levels. Please kindly close this bug. Cheers.
